6:06 pm
he was demoted to captain after failing to file a report. two years later, he was elected as the chief. march of last year, the racist text controversy came to light. in june of this year, suhr drew criticism for not clearing a backlog of rape kits. he later reversed that position. >> there are a lot of liars to the story. let's bring in andrew who has been covering city hall and sfpd for years. >> tumultuous day for the police. what do you think will be his lasting legacy? >> reporter: i think he's a legacy of a survivor. he's outlasted so many issues, from fajita gate as you mentioned and the text messaging scandal and through it all, he seemed to be like teflon. he emerged without a scratch. and yet, we see now that this
6:07 pm
final issue was enough to bring him down. >> jackson, we can rehash greg suhr, we'll do it for days and weeks to come. coming in, the acting chief, tony chaplain, you've dealt with him for several years. can he handle the pressure and the politics of this job? what does he bring to the table? >> reporter: i think he can, actually. he's been a veteran gang investigator and he's handled many conflicts, gang investigations. but his rapid rise through the ranks after that has been quite astounding. he moved pretty quick. most recently the deputy chief in administration. he was the commander over investigations. he's handled a lot of complicated and sensitive matters. perhaps he will be able to step in and act quickly. >> let's talk about the fallout both in terms of the protesters. will this be enough to appease them and bring peace to the city. they're saying they -- that this is just the beginning of the battle. also, with the rank and file.
6:08 pm
fallout for them with today's shooting and how does the rest of the department deal with greg suhr being ousted? >> reporter: you know, he was -- he was a strong proponent for the force. he'd always said that if there were a few bad apples that somehow implicated the entire didn't. i think that that's going to -- that's a mixed message. it's difficult to make, especially when you continue to have these officer-involved shootings that raise all sorts of questions. i think tony chaplain is a fresh face and can provide a new perspective on that having dealt with a lot of sensitive investigations as gang investigator. >> jackson van der beck live at city hall. all those years of avoiding and surviving the controversies for the chief, no longer. he's replaced by tony chaplain. thank you, jackson. let's go back. he was 35-year veteran. selected as the 42nd police chief in 2011. born and raised in san

neighbors. they preferred not going on camera but told us they've slipped and fallen on the olives. >> it's unsafe and not something we want to allow, let alone promote. >> every year the city receives a handful of complaints from walkers, commuters and cyclists. >> ultimately, they choose to prefer riding out in the lane of traffic versus staying in the bike lane. >> he says landscapers can't keep up with the falling fruit. they set aside $70,000 to replace them with gingkos and maples. trees that aren't so fruitful. >> we don't want to remove trees. if we had an opportunity to preserve the trees and maintain a safe environment in the area, we would absolutely be doing that. >> i don't think it's that much of a problem. >> neighbors aren't giving up and are extending an olive branch to the city. >> help keep it swept up. sweep it and take turns. >> okay. so now the city is considering keeping some 60 trees.

they're set a little farther back and don't drop olives on the sidewalk or the road. the final decision about the olive trees will be made next friday. let's turn our attention to the chief meteorologist jeff ranie ranieri. we're talking the r-word and now it's on our doorstep. >> that's rainfall. let's clarify that. it's not going to be a big storm system. but we'll get a few drops within the next two days. as we look now, the major story has been the colder temperatures. check this out. san francisco, 6 degrees cooler. you add some cooling yesterday. just kind of dropped down even more. it was back in the interior valleys where we dropped 18 degrees in concord. 24 in livermore. and down 17 in san jose. either way you look at it, a huge departure from those low 90s we had earlier this week. the fog at the immediate coastline will combine with this area of low pressure dropping to the south to give us a possibility of rainfall. for tomorrow morning, best
6:21 pm
chance of spotty showers will be the south bay and 52 degrees. clouds increase throughout the region and kwooel start with low 50s. by the afternoon, bis chance of any rainfall developing will be the north bay as we go for a high of 69 degrees and a much cooler 67 expected in the tri-valley. what i want to do now is advance this story into the best possibility of rainfall at all, period. it looks like it's going to be saturday morning around 10:00 with some scattered rain to the north bay, east bay and also for the south bay. we'll likely see the chance of this continuing until 1:30 on saturday with maybe some isolated thunderstorms developing. so, again, as the storm moves in, we've seen this 15 to about 25 degrees temperature dropment looking for the chance of scattered showers and thunderstorms. that happening on friday with the best chance on saturday. about 25 minutes we're tracking the possibility of sierra snow. i'll let you know how much we can expect across interstate 80 and highway 50 later on. >> a lot of changes coming our way.

bay area. >> it's possible that a quake from across the globe could. in reality check, sam brock explores how geography impacts our risk of tsunami. >> the pacific ocean as a whole kind of acts like a bathtub in a tsunami. it will slosh the water back and forth. >> reporter: fears of a tsunami rocking our backyard after an earthquake across the globe are frequently discussed. but the facts frame a different reality. brian garcia, with the national weather service says the shape of the earth underwater plays a big role. >> it can actually steer the tsunami waves into certain regions. we can get impacts from those areas. >> reporter: a string of earthquakes struck ecuador in recent weeks. but the energy generally gets directed to central america. not california. >> i call it the flashlight beam. >> dr. steve ward has mapped out all the scenarios and presents another way to think about this. >> the flashlight, most energy goes forward, not much goes this
6:46 pm
way. same thing with tsunami. much of the energy goes in a particular direction. in you're on the flashlight beam, you're going to get wet. if you're not on the flashlight beam, you o probably won't. >> the closest concern is alaska. right by the a lushian islands. if that fault ruptures, here's an animation. the water is displaced at the source. down the canadian coast by vancouver and proceeds to saturate the pacific northwest before settling in the bay area. the water might even pierce the bay by the golden gate bridge. but the tsunami shouldn't do much more damage from there. >> could be enough to get in the bay. it will get in the bay to a degree. but it's not going to have any sort of impact, especially north, south bay directly across from the entrance under the golden gate. they could have some impacts there. >> aside from alaska, activity by chile and japan are the other likely pathways to a tsunami reaching our shores.
6:47 pm
but scientists say the overall risk of a damaging tsunami in the bay area is still very low. for reality check, i'm sam brock. >> good information. thank you, sam. if you want to check out the tsunami risk in your neighborhood, we put a link to the know your zone link. you can find it at nbcbayarea.com/reality check. >> let's throw things over to jeff ranieri, our meteorologist. yet another change in the weather, jeff. >> it has been quite a huge drop from low 90s yesterday in ples an toon to upper 60s today. i know you felt it out there. you can see on the microclimate forecast. not only the fog that moved in today, but this area of low pressure to the north is beginning to be with an associated cold front. that's where the best possibility of rainfall comes from. seattle and portland, they're starting to see that rain moving right now. it's a matter of hours before we see our chances increase. right now on the sky camera
6:48 pm
